When we talk about SEO you probably hard this word called “Backlinks”.
So what is a Backlink? Do day really helpful in SEO? How can you build Backlinks? Let’s discuss.
What is a Backlink?
Let me explain you in simply.as an example Let’s say you have a good blog post written about Backlinks. When some other people mention your post/ site on their website( when writing a post or linking URL) we called it a Backlink.
Before some time ago Backlinks are one of the main key ranking factors. that time you could add Backlinks and they have help to rank but today with Google Penguin algorithm the whole game was changed. Now you have to build quality Backlinks with high domain authority site and also they should be “Relevant” what that means? Let say you have a fashion blog and you are linking to SEO site are they relevant? NO! So you have to build links related to your niche and if they coming from high-quality domain authority sites boom your ranking will increase.
Before talking about the advantages and how to build links you should have a simple understanding about these terms
Domain Authority :
Domain authority is a metric build by MOZ. They scale domains according to 1-100.
Taking 100 is the best site
when you getting a Backlink (when someone links back to you) it create “Link Juice” this will help to boost your domain authority and rankings
Do follow links:
when you link back to another web it is normally a Do follow link.as an example
No follow Links:
when linking another web page if you or the other site add No follow tag to that its called No follow link. As an example
<a href=”https://searchrace.com”>How to Blog</a> this is Do follow link if we add the nofollow tag
<a href=”https:// searchrace.com ” rel=”nofollow”>How to blog</a>
You can use WordPress plugins to add no follow tags. If we use no follow link search engines and bots will not follow them. we should always try to get high-quality Dofollow links
